Diamante Eco Adventure Park: Animal Sanctuary Discovery Pass
From US$42.00
Explore one of the world’s most diverse collections of species gathered in one place with a visit to the animal sanctuary at Diamante Eco Adventure Park in Guanacaste. From adorable three-toed sloths to scaly reptiles and sleek jungle cats, see an amazing array of animals rescued by the Costa Rican Ministry of Wildlife, and learn about the park’s conservation projects. The naturally designed habitats include hummingbird gardens and a large butterfly observatory teeming with jewel-toned beauties.
What to Expect
Make your way to the Diamante Eco Adventure Park in Guanacaste during opening hours, and present your voucher for a discovery pass to the animal sanctuary. Built in partnership with the renowned La Paz Waterfall Gardens, Diamante’s sanctuary is one of the world’s most diverse collections of species, all rescued by the Costa Rican Ministry of Wildlife (MINAE). Together with La Paz, the park works to combat the illegal capture and trade of wildlife and releases offspring of sanctuary animals into protected areas of Costa Rica.

At your leisure, explore the diverse animal habitats of the park, all designed to provide a natural habitat while allowing guests to observe and learn about these amazing creatures. See the wildly popular two- and three-toed sloths, watch monkeys swinging about in a spacious enclosure, and admire the power and beauty of jungle cats like pumas and jaguars.

Take a look at Costa Rica’s cold-blooded critters at a reptile exhibit featuring more than 30 species of lizards, frogs, geckos, and snakes — even poisonous varieties! Marvel at the power of the spectacular Crocodiles acutus, which can grow up to 16 feet (5 meters) long.

Watch Costa Rica's winged wonders at the hummingbird garden and world-class butterfly conservatory, featuring more than 6,000 square feet (1,830 square meters) and hundreds of delicate species. Finally, go bird watching without the binoculars and spot colorful, exotic birds like scarlet macaws, toucans, tanagers, and grosbeaks flying freely around the bird sanctuary.

Fantastic animal sanctuary

We visited the Animal Sanctuary today and had a brilliant time. I am usually, at best, pretty uncomfortable seeing animals in enclosures but I was pleasantly surprised, seeing small numbers of animals mostly in enclosures including waterfalls, ponds and tree-like structures. They appear to be...More

Sanctuary and Botanical Garden

Went early to enjoy seeing the sloths being fed. They aren’t always hungry so only one ate that day. The setting is lovely and luscious with trees to help keep us a bit cooler, but it’s tropical after all. We then visited the chocolate house...More

Best to wait. Tours run multiple times a day and are rarely full. Also you can determine best day for weather while there. Have fun!
